My System Specs


So, the computer posts (beeps) when you turn it on, then restarts again? It doesn't go into a windows loading screen at all?

If it posts, you should be able to get into the bios by pressing del repeatedly right after your computer beeps. Then you can reset it to default and see if it loads.

If not, try resetting your cmos. This will clear your BIOS and return it to a default state. Once you've done that, I would check to version of your bios to make sure that it is up to date. Might as well do this before you apply any more overclocks.

How to Reset Bios

Check with your motherboard manual to be absolutely sure that this will clear the cmos. You'll have to redo your overclock, but it should work.
